Event #190: Getting February off to a flying start!

It was a little grey and rainy at Gedling Juniors today but we didn't let that get us down. A fabulous 50 of you turned up despite the conditions, ready and raring to go!


We welcomed two new members to the Junior Parkrun family today, with Billy and Lance taking part for the first time. We hope that you had a fantastic run and that we will see you again soon.

Wristbands were earned by three runners this week: a huge well done to Molly for earning her marathon band (21 runs) and to Ben and Oliver for their half marathon bands (11 runs). Only one of you collected your band this week so come and see us next week to collect yours.


PBs were also earned by 13 runners today! Congratulations to Joseph, Charlie, Olivia, Noah, Sienna, Luke, Daniel, Archie, Hanna, Jodie, Eva, Austin and Kaydn!


The hills were alive with the sound of cheers, clapping and lots of encouragement with parents and volunteers alike supporting. As ever, a huge thank you to all our volunteers for helping make the magic happen this morning: Alice TOWNEND • Archie IBELL • Damian BENNER • Emma FURNESS • Ewan WANE • Frances ASTILL • Helen SMALLEY • Isabella RIELEY • Jake BROUGHTON • Jenny BROWN • Joanne TANNER • Jonathan TANNER • Julie DRIVER • Katie ANDREWS • Louis ASTILL • Lyndsey JOHNSON • Matthew MARSHALL • Myles SOMERTON • Neil GREGORY • Nick HILL • Oliver HILL • Roger SMALLEY • Rose PROBERT • Sammy KING • Sarah HORRIGAN-FULLARD • Sharon ASTILL • Siena LACEY • Sue UPSTONE • Ted SELBY • Tom BLAKEY • Tom ENGLAND • Zoe TANNER. We really couldn't do it without you and we really appreciate all your help.


A couple of special mentions this week. This week, Henry Smalley reached his 100th Junior Parkrun and what better way to celebrate it than with cake at the end! 100 parkruns is an incredible achievement and we are all really proud of you Henry.
Also today, Isabella Wright turned 9 and decided to celebrate her birthday by running at Gedling. We all hope you have a lovely rest of your birthday!

The high vis are drying out as we speak so we will see you again next week for more fun and laughter on the hills. See you then!
